to obama care? republicans in congress are all about numbers these days. gop members have released new documents showing just six people successfully enrolled on the first day of the new health care exchange. now, six the first day, just 248 more by day two and according to an aide for these republican committee members, a laundry list of issues kept people from getting on the site and getting the job done. >> we're working every day to make improvements to this wholly unsatisfactory website. i want to make clear nobody is more unsatisfied with the way that website has performed since the launch than the president of the united states. but we're working every day to improve it. >> so there is new evidence of a growing group within the president's own party that they are revolting against the problems plaguing the health care rollout.

those were great pictures for president obama at the end of the campaign and they infuriated republicans and mitt romney. and i think that's the one thing, sort of, that counters what we've been saying, which is, christie's advantage in this election, given where the republican party is, could be his big problem in the primaries. because there's nothing that hurts you more in the republican party these days than embracing barack obama. and so that's still going to be held against christie when he runs -- if he runs -- for the republican nomination. so maybe they're shrewder than we know. but i think in conventional terms, they would have been better off to try to hold his margin down. >> yeah, that bind there you talk about is kind of interesting, because, sure, they want -- from the christie standpoint, they want to get the margin up as high as possible. but, hey, if barack obama happened to come into the state and trash chris christie and say, vote for the democrat, that might help chris christie. that's the bind that chris christie is in. e.j. dionne, thanks for joining us. you'd prob

enough money for insurance, and they make too much money to qualify for medicaid. that's why obama care includes federal dollars for every state to expand medicaid to help those working families. to me there is nothing more ghoulish than republican governors rejecting that money and denying their own citizens life-saving health insurance just for political points. that's my happy halloween to you, newt. >> i know this is a very difficult concept for our friends on the left to understand, but a lot of governors actually believe that being bankrupt would be bad. they believe that spending a lot of money we don't have is not good. so actually, in a lot of cases they're making a principled decision, one, to not spend money they don't have, but two, to avoid federal regulation washington controls. it's quite clearly a philosophical difference. tonight we're very fortunate. in the crossfire we have two former governors, bill richardson and bob urlich, both tremendous governors and very smart guys. i'm glad they're here. let me start with you, bill. i mean, you've been at this a long time. doe

republican plan which is go back to the status quo before obama care. so i think the president is winning the argument in the long term here. >> it seems like the critics are getting most of the attention and some of the same critics are threatening to throw up these roadblocks for the president's nominations this week. we're hearing everything from, you know, threatening to hold up the nominations unless the white house reveals more about benghazi. is this extortion or the way washington works, maet. >> this is the way that this is a polarized political moment. i think that the republicans feel a little oxygen in their lungs after all the problems surrounding the shutdown and the fact that obama has the lowest approval ratings. it has given them a new vim and vigor to fight. this fight over obama care is big. the problem for second term presidents, we saw this with the president i worked for, the problem for those presidents is that as their poll numbers go down, it is harsh for them to have political victories all across the staits. if he can't get this obama care problem fixed. >> i th

republicans will immediately stop calling it obama care. >> a lot of people will, hopefully, fix their glitches. the more people that sign up, many of those people will be republicans. they will be part of, you know, the country that needs the help. it's going to be very difficult if people who couldn't get coverage are getting it and people with pre-existing conditions are getting it. it's going to be hard to take it away. >> this is troubling, steve. president obama was already having a bad year. it was a rough second term. you know about that. he was having a rough second term. this is one of the things that always makes you angry, you and all of us at the table angry, self-inflicted wounds. when we do something stupid, which i do every morning, i know. self-inflicted. i get paid for it. >> i don't agree with this one but go on. >> it was a self-inflicted wound. they knew it was coming and weren't compared. as brian brought up, their response to the crisis has been equally bad like george bush looking down over katrina. >> the first few steps along the way, if i were in the wh

the website. you try it out on a couple of states. republicans are saying obama care is bad. he wanted to show obama care is good. that's the problem. >> you're a political psychologist. might it not be better that the president fires somebody for this because at least it would send a message to the american people that i got your back. i got this under control. i'm going to demand that something be done. >> yes. >> why doesn't he fire someone? >> i don't think it's in his nature. i don't think he likes to do it and he hasn't done it very much. in a case like this sure it would be a good, symbolic gesture and useful to say look we screwed up, we put up the website too early and what we're going to do is back up and try it in a couple of states and get the glitches out. don't worry, the glitches will be out and 30 million people will end up getting covered. >> in other words he should ignore politics and do what makes it work. >> i think that's exactly right. the president didn't write the code for this thing. it's not like he's sitting there, hmm, let me figure out which html co

many years but it hasn't worked. now republicans have a real sort of talking point around obama care now. >> let me bring you back in as far as the insurance industry. you have -- there are reports that insurance executives are heading to the white house and having discussions they do not want to see in extension that's being pushed by a few democrats. they believe that would be detrimental, we don't need another insurance here. some looking at wall street and how they are faring, they are doing pretty good. you've always been concerned about the insurance executives and their influence here. what concerns you at this point? >> well, they are inordinately influ enshal. that's why the statement if you like your insurance you can keep it was so ill advised because it doesn't take into consideration how powerful these people are in washington and how much control they have over the health care system. it's important they go to the white house again. a delay into -- of some of the elements of the affordable care act would not be a good thing. i think they can work -- they have a gre

think it will be transferrable to the republicans in iowa, new hampshire, south carolina or any place else. meanwhile, in virginia, terry mcauliffe has a unified fight. he used the same playbook that president obama used to win virginia, increasing the electorate, bringing out young people, bringing out minorities, bringing out women, and he painted his opponent as somebody who was right weng, a fringe candidate, an extremist and j unacceptable to a moderate state. >> i think you have to look at these races as two completely different races. number one, you have an incumbent people already knew. the problem with cuccinelli, he was with down and had no brand equity, which meant that the democrats can come in very early and define him as they did as an extremist, and frankly, i never thought he did an effective enough job introducing himself to the voters and getting rid of that. second of all, unlike new jersey where christi was seen as independent, i do think the republicans shot themselves in the foot on some of their antics in washington and had a much bigger impact on this race, an
